It’s been a shameful while since we’ve written, but the kids have been keeping us busy. We’re now in the last few weeks of training before our marathon in Tanzania, and so running has taken its toll! For my part, I’ve also been working with several of the kids to produce and record some songs they have written, before I leave Kenya at the end of this month (making the trip home for my sister’s wedding)!
Between the running and the music, I thought it’d be a great opportunity to film a short video, set to music by Mary (a student here at Tumaini). The subject of the video is ‘time trials’–the 7k or 10k timed runs that Coach Titus has us do every few weeks to get a feel for how the kids are improving.
On this particular day, as you will see, the time trials were not universally understood and respected, whether by the kids or by nature itself–but that doesn’t stop everyone from having a good time.
Enjoy! And let me know what you think of this glimpse into our daily afternoon routine. (Apologies for YouTube, whose compression ruins the audio and whose watermark obscures some subtitles).
